This week’s Rainbow Snippet is taken from my taboo story
I shot my head back, scanning the darkness for the strange figure.
I remained frozen for several minutes, not daring to turn my back on whatever or whoever was out there. My blood thrummed through my body; the pulse of my racing heart beat loud in my ears.
Idiot. Go back inside. There’s no one there.
Bats flitted in the darkening sky. Clouds now covered the moon. A cool breeze stirred through the branches and ruffled my hair.
Still I waited.
See, nothing to be scared of out here.
Myles would have been impressed.
Thank you for reading!
